This fascinating museum focuses on the sciences beginning with the Rennaisance and following through to the period following the unification. Special areas focus on Astronomy, Physics and Mathematics, Medicine and Biology. Exhibits of particular interest include one highlighting the career and instruments of Galileo Galilei.
